performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

Started Atkins on March 16, 2009. I try to stick to organics and whole foods.

I am an undiagnosed Celiac, so gluten-free is the way I roll (dork!). :O)

I'm absolutely adoring the way I feel now that I've changed the way I eat, let alone the way I think about food. I can hardly wait to see what happens in the coming months and years. I recognize that this is my new way of life, not just a diet I'm on until I lose the weight. In fact, although I have a goal weight in mind, I'm not even sure how my body is going to react to this long-term. So when I get there, I trust my body will tell me. It tends to do that.

Calories Per Day
Ketosis does no harm. Simply signifies that your body is burning fat for fuel.

Ketoacidosis *is* harmful. They are two very different states.

As far as calories needed, new research is showing that not all calories are equal and that it takes more energy (calories = energy) to burn fat than to burn sugars. I recommend reading the chapters on all the details of metabolism is the 2002 version of Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution, then refer to the studies he cited if you want more info.

Difference between toatl carbs and net carbs???
Total carbs is, well, total carbs. Very Happy Net carbs is what you watch on Atkins, and that is total carbs minus total fiber. Eat more fiber, you get more carbs. You should pick up a copy of Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution, 2002 version. It clarifies EVERYTHING you will ever need to know about eating this way for a lifetime. Smile
